Spare a fiver for Age UK North Staffordshire!
Well, I did it! Walking 4.75 miles around Tittesworth Water in a new PB of 1 hour, 10 minutes . . . to raise money for Age UK North Staffordshire.
I work for the charity and I'm very aware of the costs of running our services and the limitations on income ultimately caused by the banking and finance crisis of recent years.
Far from the much-hyped 'Big Society' fantasy of Cameron and Co, local charities are constantly being pressed to "do more with less".
Sadly, we live in a topsy-turvey world where the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful while the dispossessed are vilified for being poor.
You can help a little bit. So, if you haven't donated yet, now's the time to cough up!
Big thanks to those of you who already have!!
